He’s baaaaack! One of the albums I want most this year is definitely KAYTRANADA. He previously said he has a project on the way this year and now we have a new single from the TSIS favorite. He took to Instagram yesterday to announce a new single “DYSFUNCTIONAL” featuring VanJess that comes as a world premiere via Apple’s Beats 1 radio with Zane Lowe.
“‘Dysfunctional’ was really this song about not calling me back and everything, or not, a relationship that doesn’t work and you want this relationship to work, but it’s not gonna work. And that’s what I’m aiming for on this song. I came out with this little hook that you hear in the beginning. That’s me singing, and I just had this idea of whatever. Not calling me back. What’s up with that? And VanJess came too, I think, like couple hours later and then just did what they did perfectly. Like in one take.”
“[the album] gonna be worth the wait. You’re gonna see a evolution of Kaytranada. It’s not gonna be just what it was. It’s gonna be more than what it was. So that’s how I see it and that’s how I hear it.” – Kaytranada via Beats 1
Zane Lowe really is the g.o.a.t. at interviews and got some great insight out of Kaytra. The incredible producer revealed he’s been working hard on his new album, where we can expect to hear an “evolution of KAYTRANADA.” He also revealed he’s been working with some of his past collaborators as well as some new ones. He actually sings the hook at the beginning before VanJess comes in and blesses the funky basslines with her alluring vocals. Check out both the instrumental and vocal versions below and enjoy!
